      1. Cool, i’m from Brazil, we compete here at AeroDesign competition (aerodesignita.com) and we want to study more about the human-powered aircraft, a brief overview would be nice, maybe a post here in the blog with the general rules, the challenges and some talks from the competitors. The burdman rally is a amazing competition and would be great to know better how it’s works! Thank you for your response, i really appreciate it!
